Design and build Quality

GD19 smartwatch features a 1.54-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 240 x 240 -pixels. It is a very light product, around 60 grams. The smartwatch comes with a high-quality soft rubber band which delivers a refined, comfortable fit on your wrist for extended wear.

Display and camera

The GD19 smartwatch comes with full laminated IPS high-definition capacitive touch screen and from our user experience the touch screen is perfect. Combined with a glossy bevel CNC edge with a very small surface, you get a nice visual effect. There is also a built-in 0.3 Megapixel selfie camera in the smartwatch allowing you to capture your life’s moments. If you are thinking what can a 0.3 Megapixel camera do, then we can say that it can be really helpful when you don’t have a smartphone in your hand. The GD19 Smartwatch also has a remote camera function which enables you to take pictures with your smartphone remotely.

Checking out additional features of GD19 smartwatch
The GD19 smartwatch is furthermore packed with some great health-related features which we normally get with premium gadgets such as Pedometer, which is a great thing if you like sports. You can record sports data including steps, distance, calories, time, etc. Sleep monitoring is another great feature for adjusting your lifestyle with the sleep data that your GD19 smartwatch can provide. The sedentary reminder is another feature that tracks all your habits and even tells you when you need to get out of the working chair to stretch a bit.

Another great feature that the GD19 smartwatch has is the intelligent anti-lost and anti-thief option. When the distance between the connected mobile phone and smartwatch is more than 10 kilometers, the watch will ring or vibrate to remind you. On the other hand, if you can’t find your mobile phone, then you can use the „looking for device“ function and your cell phone will ring so you can find it easily. Furthermore, it has built-in Alarm, Bluetooth, Calendar, Calculator and a sound recorder.

Our Opinion

After using GD19 1.54 smartwatch, we can say indeed that this is a great addition to the market. Considering all the features that it brings, you will not go wrong if you buy it. It can help you in your day to day activities, and can connect you with your friends with its own SIM card. The battery capacity of only 350mAh is something that is common with other smartwatches, and that can be an issue if you want to use the smartwatch frequently for prolonged period of time.

  1. For the Pros, I would add the: (1) SIM card. (2) the MicroSD card on top of the list. (3) Ability to remotely control the smart phone’s camera.

    For the Cons, I would add: (1) Extremely poorly written manual that is almost useless (very poor and broken English). It took some digging on my own until I figured out where the MicroSD card goes. (2) You cannot download apps to it. (3) Clumsy rubber band (I disagree with the review on this one; hard to slide it in the provided loops; cannot change/replace it either).
    If you are not highly technical, or well familiar this kind of gadgets, then you’ll encounter problems figuring out this watch.
    One irritating problem so far is that every time it syncs with the phone, it changes the time to some arbitrary time, although I had configured its time and date correctly several times.

  2. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this outstanding
    blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your
    RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and
    will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  3. The terminals are built to the highest standards and have
    received very good feedback from customers. Also, there are many other related products,
    and people can feel free to download and try them.
